ITIC Forum 2008
ITIC hosted Forum 2008 this past October with resounding success, thanks to the delegates and the time and efforts of the speakers.
We had the pleasure of hosting over 200 attendees at Forum. With the focus on providing you with access to leading speakers from the industries in which you work and the opportunity to network with colleagues outside of the traditional work environment, the two days mixed formal presentations with interactive discussions and social events.
The first day served as a general forum, which was done in a rolling-debate style, moderated by John Guy. Designed to cover topics that were of a broad interest to our members, the day started with a market overview by Dr Martin Stopford and continued with presentations about the challenges and opportunities facing the different sectors of the industry.
The second day was split into four separate forums to allow for speakers to tailor the presentations and delve into some of the finer points of ship agency, ship broking, ship management, and design and survey. Each forum covered a variety of topics, with some of the new regulations analysed and discussed. Additionally, there were workshops and interactive sessions to stimulate delegate participation.
The quality of the presentations and discussion was entirely due to the efforts of the speakers and interest of the delegates, for which ITIC is greatly appreciative. Forum could not have been successful without the delegates.
For this year’s Intermediary, ITIC has decided to use the expertise of the speakers at Forum and reproduce a selection of their speeches.
